This is a very flexible pseudo memorized deck routine resulting from the combination of "Memoria" and "Snapshot".
"There's no way now I can know the order of the cards" The cards are spread face down on the table. The comrade is asked to select any card and hide it from view with his hand. "Here's the interesting bit, I've been trying to develop a photographic memory. So far I can remember the exact order of a pack of cards in ten seconds. If there are only 51 cards I should be able to do it slightly quicker. I'm going to spread the cards face up and I'd like you to count loudly to ten." The mentalist spreads the cards face up and looks through the cards. When the comrade reaches the count of seven, the mentalist gathers the pack and turns it face down on the table. He stares directly in the comrades eyes, sits back in his chair and begins...
"I saw 26 red cards and 25 black cards, that means that your card was black. Of the black cards 13 were clubs and 12 were spades, so that means it was a spade. All picture cards were there, plus the ace, I saw the four, the nine, the eight, the three, the five, the ten, the seven, the six. So it has to be the two of spades...turn it over!" The comrade does and the two of spades is revealed, the mentalist remains the genius he always was.
Very nice ideas, a hit in my opinion.
